Yes sorry, I was referring to LCD font rendering (or sub-pixel
antialiasing).  It seems JavaFX text controls support this but text rendered
in Canvas is always using gray-scale antialiasing and looks blurry in
comparison as a result.

I am quite sure the OP is referring to this:
Whether that is or will be supported for Cancas - I don't know.
